Exceptional Education at the Heart of the Community

Principal's Welcome

A very warm welcome to Oasis Academy Temple Quarter.    

We are delighted that you’re considering our academy for your child(ren). We are incredibly proud to be opening Oasis Academy Temple Quarter and providing families with a secondary school that will serve the local community and help every young person in its care to flourish. 

At Oasis Academy Temple Quarter, every child – regardless of background or faith – will be nurtured in an exceptional school; one that knows its students and families and supports them every step of the way. 

We care deeply about creating an innovative, exciting, and inclusive learning environment centred around the Oasis ethos. 

  • A passion to include everyone  
  • A desire to treat everyone equally, respecting differences  
  • A commitment to healthy and open relationships  
  • A deep sense of hope that things can change and be transformed  
  • A sense of perseverance to keep going for the long haul  

Underpinning the Oasis ethos is the Oasis 9 Habits; a set of values that we actively promote and practice with both students and staff, helping us become the best version of ourselves.  

The Temple Quarter Enterprise Zone (TQEZ) is one of the UK’s largest city regeneration projects designed to create a sustainable and thriving new urban area in Bristol. A large part of the TQEZ will include an innovation district centred around a University of Bristol Enterprise campus. 

We will make sure Oasis Academy Temple Quarter has close links with the university and surrounding businesses to provide our students with a unique opportunity to engage with these organisations and have meaningful experiences that will help shape their understanding of future career pathways and create a culture of aspiration throughout our academy. 

With our Oasis Curriculum, our enrichment entitlement, pastoral care and community projects, our pupils will leave us with the competence, character, and sense of community to live happy and fulfilling lives in an ever-changing world. 

I look forward to meeting with you and welcoming you to our academy.
